Construction going on!

Please pardon my mess! I decided I couldn’t wait any longer so I spent the whole day making a new blog design for myself :) It’s 2am and I’m getting tired so won’t be able to get everything installed tonight this morning :( Things will look wonky for a day or three until I get it looking just right. I hope you all enjoy the new look! I’m going with cleaner and fresher for now. We’ll see how I like it! Tell me what you think! I’ll post a note when it’s finished :)

p.s. If anyone can help me figure out how the heck to get my header to center I’d be forever grateful! It’s driving me absolutely mad!!! Help! It should all line up perfectly, but it just won’t…..

  1. First, Spam, yuck. People can be so nasty sometimes!
    Second, freak me out a little, why don't ya? Click onto my blog & your button is all wrong & NOT looking like it should! Paranoid me thinks "Virus"
    Looks good, though. Go to bed now. Worry about header tomorrow.

  2. Wow! You're doing a great job! I can't wait to see it all done. But, so far, so good.

    Looks great! Like the blue and brown. I'm clueless about the header. I have that problem on my tookietrinkets blog.

  4. Thanks LV! I'm happy with it, just need to get that header skooched over, lol.

    @pixie Yay! I'm glad my button change worked :) Don't ya know I do these things just to freak you out!! I haven't had one spam comment since implementing the word verification!

    @crochet lady thanks! I think the blue/teal & brown are so calming together! That header is making me crazy though!

  5. The new design is looking fantastic. As far as your header goes, fnd this code in the "Edit HTML" section:
    #header {
    margin: 20px;
    text-align: left;

    Change 20px to 0px, and you shouldn't have that problem any more.

    If that doesn't fix it for you, check all of the "margin" settings that have to do with the header.

    I hope that helps! If you need more help, drop me a line. :)

  7. I see you got it! Looks fabulous!

  8. @ JDaniel4's Mom, Thank you! I was hoping others would like ti :)

    Thank you so much to Angie @ 5 Vinez Monkeys for helping me get that header moved over! I appreciate it!

    It doesn't seems that bad.I think that you need to work a little bit be more on this blog and you are done with that.I hope that we will be able to see few new feature added in the blog.What do you think of portable storage(containers) if it is rented for only $59.99/month or less than that?

    Portable Storage,

  10. Love the colors and whatnot. I was wondering if things were different when I clicked over 'cause it's been so long. I thought it was just me and my loopy memory. :)

    I'd like to make some changes with mine too, but I can't do it myself. LOL… My HTML and design knowledge are almost non-existent.

I ♥ your comments
